        Hello @dyrer,

        If Greek was not at 100% for the release of 4.0 (https://make.wordpress.org/polyglots/2014/09/04/instructions-for-4-0-which-will-be-released-in/), there’s a chance a package for it was never built.

        The admin projects for the locale need to be at 100% (The Network Admin for el is currently at 62%). It’s highly recommended that Akismet is also at 100%.

        Please let me know when this is done so I can find someone to build a language pack and include it into the installer.

    3.6 won’t install when translated 


    We built WP36-RC2-fr_FR for community testing purpose using fr.wp.org, and it turns out it won’t get us to step 2 of the installation process. Blank screen.

    It won’t work whether the strings come from our SVN repository (as usual) or from translate.wp.org (same strings, freshly imported).
    Won’t even if we temporarily remove translation files.

    It will install in fr_FR if we create wp-config.php with the proper install information (jumps to “Site name etc.” section of installer.

    Anyone else having this experience.

      Just checked sv_SE, our RC2 package works fine. Fresh install, full browser install.

      Can i get the WP36-fr_FR package to give it a try?

    • Xavier Borderie 8:49 am on July 26, 2013 Permalink | Log in to Reply

      Thank you Mattias.

      This is weird. I thought it was an issue with our translated wp-config-sample.php file, but it hasn’t changed since 2010.
      If I remove the language files from the fr_FR package, it doesn’t install either (blank page at setup-config.php?step=2).
      If I make a mistake in my database setting, it does display that the installer cannot connect, in French.

      If you have ideas I could test, please let me know!

      Here are the error messages we get:

      if anyone feels like testing it: https://fr.wordpress.org/builds/fr_FR/branches/3.6/wordpress-3.6-RC2-fr_FR.zip

      Thank you for your help!

        Your version.php file says ‘3.6-beta3-24485’.

        Looks like you used revision 24494 (3.6-beta3) to build the package instead of 24794 (3.6-RC2). This particular issue (a fatal error due to undefined function) was fixed in [24497].

          You’re right, thanks! It now installs perfectly.

          It’s weird: while the packaging tool does indicate “3.6-RC2-24803” as the version number when I choose to generate the package from trunk, it also choose to remain on revision [24499] — which I hadn’t paid attention to.

    I downloaded wordpress-3.4.1-vi.zip directly from vi.wordpress.org and it produced an error once decompressed. It was looking for wp-includes/classes.php, which doesn’t exist. Minutes later, I downloaded the English version and installed it without error. I then created a blank wp-config.php file. It returned a similar error, but this time it it stated there was an undefined call to function wp() in wp-blog-header.php. I thought maybe there were permission issues but I’m not sure.

    Nonetheless, the Vietnamese version of WordPress 3.4.1. is buggy and does not install like the original English version. Can someone look into this?

      I downloaded and installed it in my wamp server and it works fine.

      You can download the English version and copy the language files over. It’s buggy for me, too.

      • tonewilliams 3:16 am on December 11, 2012 Permalink | Log in to Reply

        Thanks, so it’s not just me then! So when you say copy the language files over, do you mean:
        1.) Open the Vietnamese zip download and locate the appropriate Vietnamese language file(s) in some language folder
        2.) Open the standard (English) WordPress zip file and insert those language files into the respective language folder.
        3.) Install the standard/English version of WordPress normally?

        If so:
        a.) Where is the language folder located?
        b.) Which files do I need to copy over?
        c.) Will WordPress install using the Vietnamese language pack initially or are there additional steps following?

        • quocnt 5:00 am on December 11, 2012 Permalink | Log in to Reply

          Changing the language (i.e. copying the file over) will not do anything to the installation. It’s only a cosmetic change. So you can install wordpress first then copy the files over or vice versa. The change is instantaneous, and hassle-free.
          The files are located at wp-contents/languages folder. Just copy everything.
          Then open the wp-config.php file, search for define('WPLANG', ''); and change it into define('WPLANG', 'vi');
          That’s it.
